Oracle Performs at Warp Speed with Texas Memory, Topspin Partnership

9/15/2003 - Texas Memory Systems, manufacturer of the world’s fastest storage®, and Topspin Communications, the leader in switched computing, announced a technology partnership to provide database users with a high performance solution that leverages their investment in critical applications. By deploying Texas Memory Systems’ RamSan solid state disk and Topspin’s Switched Computing System, users can easily adapt to the dynamic needs of their critical business applications. The combined solution alleviates costly I/O bottlenecks and latency across the infrastructure, from the application to the data. The result is a high performance, scalable application architecture unmatched anywhere else in the market.

“Topspin’s industry leading InfiniBand hardware and gateway technology fits perfectly with our high performance storage systems,” said Woody Hutsell, Executive Vice President for Texas Memory Systems. “Together, our products work to systematically eliminate the performance bottlenecks in the application data chain.”

Topspin’s Switched Computing System is a high speed, low latency interconnect, based on InfiniBand technology. It enables high performance clustering between Oracle RAC database servers for server-to-server communication and provides fast connections to RamSan solid state disks through an Infiniband-to-Fibre Channel gateway. Lower latency on the server-to-server interconnect results in lower overall CPU utilization and improved performance. By attaching a RamSan-320 solid state disk, the low latency of the interconnect can be complemented by low latency, high bandwidth storage.

“The combination of a high speed, low latency server interconnect, and high bandwidth storage is ideal for getting the most out of performance-sensitive applications like Oracle.” Said Stu Aaron, Vice President of Marketing for Topspin. “Together, Texas Memory Systems and Topspin have assembled a solution of great value to both our channel partners and end users.”

In addition to working closely as technology partners in the development of solutions, Topspin and Texas Memory Systems have already begun delivering these joint solutions to customers through common resellers.

“As a reseller for both Topspin and TMS, we are excited to see these companies work together to improve performance for Oracle RAC implementations,” said Joseph Keith, Director of Business Development for Promicro Systems. “Having a proven solution that offers immediate performance gains without the hassles of database tuning is ideal for our customers.”

Topspin (booth 620) and Texas Memory Systems (booth 2226) products will be showcased at Oracle World.
